Fun film showing how computers are advancing processes, mainly military, to new frontiers! My computer nowadays, so they say, could likely do everything those computers could do twice over. Its just so amazing to see these mammoths at work with their tapes, punchcards and what have you. Here, a routine simulated attack is formulated. Much discussion with all sorts of people is shown, from logic scientists, mathematicians, to the computer programmers to figure it all out before it goes into the computer. Nowadays, 90% of that workforce is not needed. Kinda scary, but hella interesting! Highly reccomended!
